There's no doubting The Bonham is a beautiful boutique hotel. The decor & Georgian architecture is elegant, tasteful & luxurious.
Used an ITISON voucher for a 2 course lunch. Limited menu, but high quality food. Our starter of pumpkin & amaretto soup was absolutely divine. Silky smooth & full of flavour, scattered with pumpkin seeds. Fresh bread & butter sprinkled with sea salt. Chilled glass of Cava.
Mains, I had the duck, which was one of the best plates of duck I've ever had. Absolutely delicious, just couldn't fault it. My husband had coley, which he said was "incredibly salty". He said the salt totally overpowered & spoilt the dish. Fat hand cut chips ( 11 of them between us! ) & vegetables came @ £3.50 PER PORTION. I REALLY object to this. If you're paying for a meal, potatoes & veg should come WITH the meal & not cost extra.
We decided to pay £4.50 extra for dessert. My husband had the cheese board, which came with 2 types of cheese, celery, grapes, chutney & biscuits, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had the lemon brûlée with citrus biscuits. The brûlée did not taste of lemon, but the biscuits did. A bit disappointing. We then had coffee which was very good, but @ £3.00 PER COFFEE.
Service was polite, courteous & lovely. Toilets & public areas spotlessly clean.
Although we enjoyed our experience @ The Bonham on the whole, it's the prices of "extras" that really puts a bad taste in the mouth.
Not wheelchair accessible.
